Are you looking for new releases in Film or Television to watch this weekend of April 2nd!? Well, THS has you covered in our weekly series! So, make sure to come back each week as we compile all of our recommendations for you to check out on your days off.
However, I wanted to break down this list and make it a little more personal. Kind of like when you walk into a book store and see the wall of employee recommendations. So, I’ll be breaking down this list as to what we at THS are watching, not necessarily every single thing releasing. So, first up Shawn!
Since the new Fantastic Beast moving is coming out, I’m going to rewatch the entire series to prepare for the upcoming, Secrets of Dumbledore. I also wanna watch the 1990s version of Stephen Kings, The Stand. And finally, Sunday is trash reality TV night with 90-day fiance: before the 90 days!
I’m definitely going to be checking out Apollo 10 ½, as well as Morbius which hits theaters!
I’ve got a huge TV/Movie weekend ahead of me! Of course, I’m gonna head to the theaters to check out Morbius. Then, I’m plopping on my couch to turn on Disney+ for Moonknight and Better Nate Than Ever. Then, I’m diving into The Last Bus on Netflix. I’ll watch anything Robert Sheehan does!
I know Morbius is coming out, but with all the mixed reviews I’m not sure how I feel about it.
I’m going to watch Dune and finally see what all the fuss is about. And of course, with some spare time for more Gargoyles afterward.
I’m going to try to rewatch Free Solo since it’s been a while since I’ve seen it. I also want to watch Iron Fist since it’s finally on Disney+!
Outlander Sundays are back! It’s that time!

Through Julia’s life and her joie de vivre, the series explores a pivotal time in American history – the emergence of public television as a new social institution, feminism and the women’s movement, the nature of celebrity and America’s cultural evolution. At its heart, the series is a portrait of a loving marriage with a shifting power dynamic.
Moonshot follows Walt (Cole Sprouse) and Sophie (Lana Condor) as they join forces in order to be reunited with their significant others.

Apollo 10 ½: A Space Age Childhood tells the story of the first moon landing in the summer of 1969 from two interwoven perspectives – the astronaut and mission control view of the triumphant moment, and through the eyes of a kid growing up in Houston, Texas who has intergalactic dreams of his own. Taking inspiration from Academy Award-nominated® filmmaker Richard Linklater’s own life, Apollo 10 ½: A Space Age Childhood is a snapshot of American life in the 1960s that is part coming of age, part societal commentary, and part out-of-this-world adventure.

The crew realizes they have to revamp their routine or they don’t stand a chance. Meanwhile, Amalie is distracted, searching for her estranged mother who lives in Paris and runs a ballet school. Her stage presence suffers as she botches the crew’s new moves and tensions within the crew rise. They confront Amalie and she comes to the devastating realization that she no longer has a part in the crew. But as she searches for her mother, she stumbles upon an underground dance club where she can be free and rekindle her passion for dancing. Torn between the love of Mikael, the longing for her absent mother, and her passion for dance, Amalie must choose. Who is she to become?
